SEBO Felix Vacuum Converts From Upright to Canister Style

SEBO Felix Vacuum Converts From Upright to Canister Style

Upon first seeing the SEBO Felix Vacuum Cleaner, we found the fashion-influenced styling reminding us a little too much of our memories growin up around middle aged Korean golf enthusiasts dressed in Burberry sweaters (aka our aunts and uncles). But what we did like about these extremely light 10lbs. upright models is how they can convert from a vertical-use position to a light carry-type handheld.

My sister and I are actually looking to get our mom a new vacuum, since her heavy duty model is proving to a bit of hassle as she ages. Our first inclination was to get her one of fugly, but highly recommended . But after considering the SEBO Felix model is just 10lbs, filters 99.9% of particles down to 0.3 microns, and also happens to look like some of the sweaters in my mom's closet, perhaps we'll have to consider spending the extra money for one these $799 models.
